from Jerusalem October 8-28, 1990. In late September, 1990, Heather Spears
returned to the Occupied Territories, and arrived in East Jerusalem (at
Maqassad Hospital) the morning of October 8th, day of the infamous "Wailing
Wall", or "Temple Mount" Massacre.
In 1989-90, Heather Spears spent 9 months touring the US and Canada with
her drawings of wounded Intifada children. They have been exhibited, among
other places, at the UN in Geneva, UN Plaza in New York, in Washington,
D.C., Oxford, Cambridge and London. Dr. Jonathan Fine, Director of Physicians
for Human Rights, has called her drawings "a moving contribution
to understanding the suffering of Palestinians under occupation
an instance where drawings and sparse commentary have power transcending
almost any other kind of communication."
